ForceEffect from Autodesk


ForceEffect, Autodesks mobile engineering app for simulating design concepts on the go, has finally been released for Android. It has been available on iOS devices since November 2011.

“ForceEffect, wow, that sounds cool, but what does it do?” I hear you ask. Well, to start with it allows:

•Freehand sketching of elements and construction lines with snaps, constraints, and inferencing
•Object dimensioning, global scaling, units, constraints
•Import image as background
•Create joints (welded, pinned)
•Break element at joints
•Create supports (fixed, grounded, sliding)
•Create loads (known, unknown, distributed) and moments
•Add weight to individual elements
•Compute reaction forces and moments for equilibrium and over-constrained systems
•Toggle forces to show force vector components
•Results reporting with picture, results, all equations
•Save and load files from Autodesk 360
•In app tutorials

I won’t lie to you, I have no idea what most of that is. ForceEffect is an app that I will probably never use, but that’s ok as it is not aimed at me! Oh, did I mention, it’s free also.

For more information on ForceEffect for Android, check it out on Google Play or if you have an iOS device, check it out on the App Store.
